At NAU’s spring commencement ceremony on May 12, Haeger will present Bornstein with an honorary degree in recognition of her dedication to higher education and her contributions to NAU.
Since assuming the role of president at CCC in 2007, Bornstein has been instrumental in launching several initiatives that enhance the quality of higher education and built a solid collaboration with NAU.
It began with CCC2NAU, a joint admission program that has served as a blueprint for collaboration between higher education institutions throughout Arizona. The award-winning program has led to 16 more 2NAU partnerships around Arizona and served as a national model for transition programs that boost student success. Additionally, CCC and NAU have combined several student services that enhance the education experience while conserving and consolidating resources.
